Typhoon Haiyan  also known as Typhoon Yolanda, is a tropical cyclone that devastated the Philippines. It first made landfall at Guiuan, Eastern Samar on the morning of November 8, 2013, and then proceeded to Tacloban City , where a storm surge laid waste to much of the area. The typhoon then caused destruction in northern Cebu, Panay island, and northern Palawan before exiting the country towards Vietnam
